- Museums

The Leader Sheep Centre in Þistilfjörður North-Iceland is unique. It is impossible to find a similar museum as Iceland is the only country in the world where Leader Sheep exists. You find collections of pictures, stories, and information about the Leader Sheep.

Besides information, we run a small shop with handmade goods produced from wool, horns, bones, and skins of the Leader Sheep. The Leader Sheep Center has received an award from the Farmers Association for use of wool, skins, and horns.

"If you wear clothes made of wool of Leader Sheep then you always find your way.”

We have a small Café where we serve a special blend of coffee and good cakes.

One art exhibition is here every summer in our small gallery and is booked next consecutive 10 years.

We run small and cozy guesthouse, THISTLE GUESTHOUSE, with 12 beds. There is a kitchen available and all the other needed facilities.

Open from 11am to 6pm, July-Agust and by appointment in other months.
